Circumstances that Sanction Personal Injury Suits

Most employers are insured with workers’ compensation in order to ensure that the company and its employees are protected in the event of an accident. Through workers’ compensation, you can file a claim for your injury and, if approved, will likely receive a minimum settlement. However, this is not always adequate to cover all of your medical bills, your loss of wages, and your pain and suffering. Thus, our team of legal professionals can help you understand additional ways you can recover compensation.

For example, if your accident was the result of machinery or equipment that failed due to a defect or danger, you may be able to pursue a defective product injury claim against the machine’s manufacturers. Companies that manufacture products, especially powerful machines and equipment have a responsibility to ensure that their products are safe for sale, consumption, and use. Failure to do so is considered negligence and grounds for a liability lawsuit.

Our lawyers can help you file personal injury claims in the following scenarios:

  • You were injured by a toxic substance at work.
  • An employer’s intentional conduct caused your injury.
  • Your workplace injury was caused by a third party.
  • Your employer is not protected by workers’ compensation.

Furthermore, in addition to personal injury lawsuits, if your injury is preventing you from working or fulfilling your duties, you may also be eligible to pursue a Social Security Disability claim. Your options for finding the financial support that you need for your injury are endless. Our firm can thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident to determine the best course of action to secure maximum compensation.
